A friend of mine wants to rescue cats and sell them for $100.00 each. She thinks she'll be doing a good thing and making money at the same time. I don't think it's a good idea. I oppose the idea of rescuing cats and finding homes for them for profit rather than simply for the sake of rescuing cats and finding them homes. I don't think very many people would pay $100.00 for a cat. She swears that by charging this much she's sure to find good homes for them. I think she's going to find herself stuck with a bunch of cats. This girl is money-minded. We once had a conversation on the bus about what she would do if she won a nice house. She said she would make a living breeding maltese dogs and selling them. She made it sound so easy. Now she's moving into her own apartment which happens to allow pets, she's going to have a cat of her own and at the same time make this business of rescuing and selling cats. I suppose if the cats have all their vaccinations and veterinary care and are spayed and neutered and well cared for it's not such a bad thing but just the idea of doing this for the sake of profit makes me cringe and right now I have no way of knowing for sure that she's going to do everything right and I just don't support it. In fact we argued over the phone. What do you think? Many of you have more experience with this.
